were lots of people in the american jewish community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you

months that nobody should be afraid of the nra that, frankly, they lose a lot more elections than they win but for two decades they have effectively locked down any common sense gun reforms, so i don't think anybody should be surprised that it's hard to get majorities in the united states senate or the house of representatives. this place has gotten pretty used to doing what the gun lobby says and it's going to take a lot of elbow grease and hard work and those of us who care about gun reform to change that mentality. >> the issue of gun reform more broadly. david brooks wrote a very interesting editorial today saying that essentially the gun debate has been missing the mark. he says that past efforts to control gun violence, to control guns -- to control guns has not reduced gun violence. he also says this, and i thought it was interesting. he says we have a successful history of reducing violence by spreading efforts across the killing chain. we have a disappointing history of trying to reduce violence with a gun-obsessed approach. he makes the point that any attempt to stop gun

-election in pro-gun states like arkansas, montana, south dakota, for example, who would be in real trouble on an issue like an assault weapons ban. people believe it is a constitutional issue in their state. i think that the democratic party as well as the republican party is reluctant on this issue. if it had been easy to do, they would have renewed the ban on assault weapons when it expired. >> first of all, we are seeing a change in the very fact we are debating this. this issue was under a gag rule for a decade after al gore's defeat, and the national debate encouraged action in blue leaning states like colorado, new york, and connecticut. but the problem is, gloria, that democrats are divided and republicans by ideology. red state democrats have been reluctant to vote for this, going back to 1994, they had a lot of defection on red districts and red state democrats. the difference is gun control advocates haven't been able to put pressure on republicans from blue places to make up for those. as a result, doesn't seem to be anything near majority. >> and harry reid, leader of t

back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are not republican strongholds, sending republicans basically ambassadors to participate in events in minority communities and even visit historically black colleges and universities. ♪ the math in jay z's campaign trail anthem was a little off. 219 is more like it, if you're talking about the gop failure in the last presidential election. >> there's no one reason we l t lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primar

know has been very frayed particularly during the last presidential election. >> strong words of support from the israeli president shimon perez we just heard. >> and we'll have to see what b.b. netanyahu does and how his body language is and how he reacts to this president. you were over there in israel when he met with mitt romney during the campaign there were tense times with the president not with mitt romney. thanks very much. >>> just ahead the art of the comeback. right now south carolina voters are passing judgment on a former governor whose affair and divorce may not be the final chapter of his political career. >>> and we'll show you an incident that kansas city's mayor is calling unfortunate. >> exactly what [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. chips...delicioso. chicken nuggets... what's going on? carrots...craveable. sabra hummus: dip life to the fullest.

upholding it, a presidential election, and a whole lot more, some republicans out there still are trying to repeal it. some in fact more than others. >> it should be repealed. >> repealing obama care. >> repeal, root, and branch. repeal funding for obama care. >> let's repeal this failure. >> i would urge that obama care would be repealed and i yield the floor. >> our national political correspondent jim acosta has been looking into what for some republicans has clearly become an obsession. >> reporter: wolf, republicans tried once again to repeal the president's health care law dubbed by supporters and detractors as obama care. the latest gop senator to take a shot says he is not giving up. three years after president obama signed health care reform into law, republican opponents are still treating it like a dise disease that needs to be cured. >> obama care is hurting young people, seniors, hispanics, african-americans. >> reporter: texas gop senator ted cruz is the latest lawmaker to propose eliminating obama care. like all of the other repeal attempts, it failed. >> i intend to keep

where we hold lawmakers and the elected officials accountable. republicans and democrats. michele bachmann is maybe a special case for them because a couple years ago she said things that are, you know, questionable before, but particularly on their show she said that the president spends $200 million a day for example to go to india which turned out not to be true. she said that to anderson. when it came to this, anderson's people saw it. they asked me to request an interview. i did and was told no so i went to the regular house republican meeting where we asked all kinds of lawmakers all kinds of questions and i found her and tried to ask her. >> any followup today, any reaction from her or her staff? >> no. and i tried to get, you know, context so i could be accurate and get more information from her people and they just said the congresswoman's statements speak for themselves. thanks. >> she always does good work. >>> just ahead --. >> earth to chairman ryan. come in, chairman ryan. come back to earth. >> the house budget committee chairman paul ryan is going to talk about his
